Crowns

If you experience tooth decay or imperfections, contact experienced dentist Kohei Morita, DDS, and his team at Morita Dental in Cupertino, California, about dental crowns. Crowns fit over natural teeth that are broken, decayed, or unattractive. Call today or book an appointment online to speak with the Morita Dental team about improving your smile with dental crowns.


What are dental crowns?

A dental crown is a cap, or covering, that fits over your natural tooth to improve its appearance, size, shape, and strength. The Morita Dental team uses molds to copy the shape of your original tooth before cementing a new ceramic crown over it to perfect your beautiful smile. 

Why might I need a dental crown?  

The team might recommend a dental crown for several reasons, including to:

  • Strengthen decaying or broken teeth
  • Support teeth containing large fillings
  • Hold a dental bridge in place
  • Hide discolored or misshapen teeth
  • Cover dental implants
  • Improve the appearance of natural teeth

To find out if a tooth-colored crown is the right dental restoration for you, a dental specialist at Morita Dental reviews your oral health history, examines your teeth and gums, and takes dental X-rays.

What happens during dental crown placement?

Prior to receiving a crown, your provider at Morita Dental might remove dental decay, complete a root canal if it’s necessary, or reshape your natural tooth. They might place a filling on your tooth or file it down to prepare for crown placement. 

Your provider takes a mold of your teeth and sends the information to a dental lab, where technicians create a custom-fit crown that fits perfectly over your natural tooth. You might receive a temporary crown until the permanent one arrives.

When your new crown is ready, your Morita Dental provider ensures it fits well and permanently bonds the crown over your natural tooth to create a beautiful, aesthetically pleasing smile you can feel confident about.

How can I care for my new dental crown?

Care for your new crown by keeping your teeth clean and seeing the Morita Dental team every six months for professional cleanings and dental exams. Brush your teeth twice daily with fluoride toothpaste, floss daily, and avoid chewing on hard candy, ice, and other hard objects. Call the office if your crown breaks or becomes loose.

Don’t live with imperfect or decaying teeth when simple treatments are available at Morita Dental. Call or book an appointment online to learn about how dental crowns can improve your smile.
